The final was one for the ages, as Lionel Messi won the World Cup in his last ever World Cup game, but Kylian Mbappe showed him that he is not the only star player around with his gesture video viral

Messi and Angel Di Maria scored for Argentina in the first half to give them a merited 2-0 lead at the break. In the first 45 minutes, France failed to record a single shot on target, and Didier Deschamps was so disappointed that he made two substitutions in the 40th minute.

Few World Cup finals have witnessed such lopsided support for one team as this year’s, with many fans rooting for Messi to lift the trophy.

Messi’s evening was put in jeopardy when Kylian Mbappe, a teammate of Messi’s at Paris Saint-Germain, entered the game. After Messi celebrated in front of Mbappe earlier in the game, the Frenchman took his moment to get payback by celebrating in the same manner.

The 23-year-old struck twice in 90 seconds to put France back on equal terms. Mbappe is said to feel devalued by Messi’s presence in Paris, leading to friction between the two at the club level.

Mbappe prefers playing on the wing, but with Messi in the lineup, he has been forced to play in the centre. Messi scored again in overtime, so that wasn’t even the final word between the two. However, with only three minutes remaining, Messi scored to force penalties.

After Messi and Mbappe scored from the penalty spot, Gonzalo Montiel scored the game-winning penalty, and Emi Martinez saved both of their attempts.

France Kylian Mbappe Scores Hattrick In Final

Kylian Mbappe, a forward for France, scored a hat trick in the World Cup final, becoming only the second player to do so. Sunday, after a lacklustre first half, he led his team back from the verge of defeat against Argentina in extra time, and the match ended in a 3-3 tie, sending the match to penalties.

In 1966, when England overcame West Germany 4–2, after extra time, Geoff Hurst became the first player to score three goals in a final.
